Dengue continues to worry Suriname

Via Stabroek News :

" Four out of six patients with a viral condition in Diakonessenhuis have dengue. Last weekend, ten cases of viral infection were admitted to the Academisch Ziekenhuis Paramaribo, AZP, [University Hospital].

In the meantime the cases keep flooding other hospitals, forcing authorities to call in the help of the Military Hospital. The Nickerie regional hospital conducted 100 lab tests in 2011, 20 of which were positive for dengue.

In January 2012, 12 cases have been uncovered so far. s‘Lands Hospitaal had 40 lab test requests between December and January, four of which tested positive, while the AZP lab had 100 positive cases."
